In the days before mirrors, baseball players would collect their own baseball cards so that they'd always know what they looked like. Enjoy the preservative nature of photographs with today's Groupon: for $69, you get a one-hour studio photo session and a CD with 10 high-resolution images at Sweet Light Studio on Washington Avenue (up to a $615 value).
Professional photographer Allison—who has more than 10 years of experience snapping shots for editorial fashion spreads—choreographs artful poses for indelible portraits of families, pets, children, and more. Operating from a 4,000-square-foot studio space, Allison bathes subjects in natural light and hand sanitizer before capturing vibrant, smile-singed scenes. A one-hour session allows ample time to snag shots of adorable babies ($165), entire families ($215), or time-stamped life sketches of high-school seniors ($215; sessions may last longer if needed).
After the photo shoot ends and smiles recede, guests select 10 of the best high-resolution remembrances on a CD for scrapbook mash-ups from an online gallery. ($400).
As of July 20, 2010, Sweet Light Studio has moved from its Washington Street location to North 2nd Street.
